Robots 4 U

by Erin on July 29, 2009

Moving has eaten my brain PLUS I'm traveling for work this week, so in place of any coherent post, I bring you ROBOT ART, courtesy of Etsy. (As always, click on the images to visit the listings.)

robots and blasters

Robots in love. With guns. What is better than that? Nothing.

robots and commerce

These are the robots capitalism was supposed to bring us. Where are they?

robots yelling

Even robots get cranky.

robot earrings

Awwwww, robot earrings!

Robots + cupcakes, two great memes that taste great together!

And one last one:

robot fabric

Robot fabric! I wish there was more than one yard …

Here's hoping that robots put YOU in a good mood, too. Happy Wednesday!

Love the robots! I think the earrings may be my favorite. They certainly put me in a good mood. Thanks for the fun photos!

Oh, buy the one yard, you know you want to, make a blouse and a solid skirt or a two toned dress…

You have a lot going on! Good luck with the changes. Glad you are still able to post during the hectic time too.

That second one down is actually a star projector from a planetarium – I know because I used to operate one for a living. Now Im drooling over that print on Etsy :) … thanks!

I adore the cranky robot. He shakes his tiny fists at the sky!

Ha! I do a search for robot on Etsy every once in a while, too!

Just bought the angry robot print – I absolutely adore his little angry fist


Gabrielle July 29, 2009 at 6:37 pm

I LOVE robots! :) Might have to pick me up a set of those robot earrings. Theyd look mighty cool dangling from my robot-lovin lobes.


oracle July 29, 2009 at 8:12 pm

That cranky one looks more grimly revolutionary, to me. The fist in the air, the grimace, and all.


Solo July 29, 2009 at 9:08 pm

Im not really into robots. But those robot earrings catch my attention. =DSoloTravel and LivingJob Hunt Pinoy

That second one down is actually a star projector from a planetarium- thats exactly what I wanted to write! I did not use to work in a planetarium, but its such a specific shape that I cannot forget it.

Sew while listening to They Might Be Giants *Robot Parade*ch


Emily July 30, 2009 at 11:05 pm

I just bought a yard of that fabric to make a dress for my 2-year-old daughter. Thanks for the tip!


mamafrog July 31, 2009 at 2:30 am

I just bought the cutest robot themed flannel fabric off ebay for my grandsons quilt-in-progress!

The robot ear rings are really cool. Can you tell me where to get it? Thanks!

I have not been affected by robots in this lifetime, as of yet, and so remain neutral to them. But I DO think similar earrings in different colors are cute. Mix it up a little, you know? They become more like charms on a bracelet than a perfectly matchy-matchy pair. What you can do is buy 2 sets of earings of the same make (but different color or whatever), switch the partners, and give the other resulting set to an adventurous friend. I did this with Mexican earrings (matching a rooster and a donkey) and also some tiny pressed flowers in turquoise and/or yellow glass. My sister liked her set because they were real conversation starters. People would say, Do you know youre wearing different earrings? and shed say, Yes! Isnt it great?

My robotic arm is in love with your robot fabric. Hot and electric!


SJ July 31, 2009 at 6:24 pm

Whoops – Blogger doesnt want me to share capitalisms real robots with the world! Here are the robots the future hath wrought – this robotic arm is not unlike Fortunes hallucinations. But they never expected the robots to flourish… IN SPACE!
